Community Theater - Option 1

Sloped Seating with Balcony

A fully equipped performance venue that hosts local, regional, and national acts, this medium-format performing arts hall offers broad seating areas on the first level plus additional balcony seating.

For higher output levels or acoustics that present too much naturally reflective sound, a more directional loudspeaker system will deliver clearer music and voice articulation. The IV6 Modular Vertical Array offers line-array type directivity. Two IV6 arrays are configured to address all seating areas with supplemental front-fill loudspeakers arrayed across the stage lip. While there are no line-of-sight disruptions from any seats to a large portion of the array, there may be a need for supplemental fill speakers for the last rows on the first level.

Grouping subwoofers close together achieves higher levels from a smaller number of subwoofers. To provide even bass coverage to all patrons, the outer subs are signal-processed with a short delay and a lower frequency Low Pass Filter (~60Hz) than the inner subs (~80Hz). This approach can apply as a design strategy for similar venues with wide prosceniums and a need for several subwoofers (for higher output).

Two (2) IV6 Arrays  
(Each array has [9] 1122/05, [1] 1122/15 elements)
Two (mirror image) IV6 spiral arrays (increasing curvature from top to bottom) cover the entire space providing even SPL throughout, utilizing progressive attenuation settings from our Passive Acoustic Optimization tool in EASE® Focus 3.
 
Four (4) IC6-2082/26   
Front fills provide localization for patrons near the stage. 
 
Eight (8) IV6-118S subwoofers   
Four ground stacks of two (2) subwoofers each are spaced below the front of the stage facing the audience. 

Technical Considerations

Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers

Community recommends our series of Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers (ALC) for all Community loudspeaker applications, like those shown in this application guide. ALCs provide all of the signal routing, zone switching, DSP processing, protective limiting, remote monitoring, and amplification functions needed between a mixer and the loudspeakers in virtually any Community Professional Loudspeakers application. Standard Ethernet communication protocols allow for fast system design, system control, and remote system monitoring. Analog and Dante® inputs are included in each model, for quick and easy integration into any new or existing system. Community-authored loudspeaker presets include equalization, high pass filters, and multi-stage limiters tailored to each model, ensuring consistent sound quality and full loudspeaker protection in every application.

ALC Application Note

Total available power can be safely distributed asymmetrically across the outputs in any combination of low impedance and 70V/100V loads.  Power delivered from each output is individually managed; total shared power per ALC is monitored and limited independently by the power supply.

ALC-404D

4 inputs (Analog and/or Dante®)

4 channels of amplification and DSP processing

Each channel provides up to 400W of power into low impedance or 70V/100V loads, stable to 2Ω

In bridged mode, each pair of channels provides up to 800W into 8Ω, 4Ω, or 70V/100V loads

Total shared power not to exceed 1200W

Perfect for Small R SERIES, V SERIES, Compact I SERIES, W SERIES (W2), and ENT200 models, and zoned C SERIES & D SERIES applications

ALC-1604D

4 inputs (Analog and/or Dante®)

4 channels of amplification and DSP processing

Each channel provides up to 1600W of power into low impedance or 70V/100V loads, stable to 2Ω

In bridged mode, each pair of channels provides up to 3200W into 4Ω, or 70V/100V loads

Total shared power not to exceed 4800W

Perfect match for Larger R SERIES & W SERIES, I SERIES, IV6 and ENT-FR

ALC-3202D

2 inputs (Analog and/or Dante®)

2 channels of amplification and DSP processing

Each channel provides up to 3200W of power into low impedance or 70V/100V loads

In bridged mode, each pair of channels provides up to 6400W into 4Ω, or 70V/100V loads

Total shared power not to exceed 6400W

Perfect for R6-MAX, I SERIES Subwoofers and larger IV6 Arrays
